When I boot up the computer a Windows Explore window opens. This has just started doing this. I have no idea why and I would like to stop it from opening. It opens to the C:\Users\fred\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\AutorunsDisabled  folder which is empty.

Any ideas on what is causing this to open and how do I stop it?


Sorry for the bother but I found it. It was in.....HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\AutorunsDisabled


I deleted the AutorunsDisabled folder in the item above and all is good again.
